The trouble is that Hyper (5-2) is coming off a top try in a Canadian Grade 1 just three weeks ago and returns on what is considered short rest these days. I'm positive this weighs heavily on Chad Brown--yet another fan of the 5-6 week time frame but there is a $250,000 pot, the horse obviously is doing well or wouldn't start, and who can stop Ken Ramsey in 2013, anyway.
So we'll take Hyper to win at 8-5 or greater and key-box him in exotics with in-form Imagining (7-2); tough-tripper Sky Blazer (6-1); classy filly Tannery (5-1); and price shots Hangover Kid (20-1), carefully pointed here, and Nutello (15-1), good U.S. debut at Spa then dull with Lasix last time--no Lasix today.
